    Hello everyone. I am based in the UK and was lucky enough to find two beautiful Pekin bantam hens in the road outside our house. We have absolutely fallen in love with them. Unfortunately one now has bumble foot and the other has gone broody and we have no idea what to do! I will be posting a few questions I think...

    Hi :frow
    Whereabouts in the UK are you located? Pekin bantams seem to be the most popular chicken breed for hobby keepers.
    I'd love to see photos of your two.
